Design Thinking Workshop
Posted 03/28/2017 03:17PM

Spots are filling quickly!

Immerse yourself in a four-day, hands-on Design Thinking workshop where members of the Moreau faculty and staff will teach you and a team of 3-12 people how to bring student-centered change to your school.

In this action-oriented workshop, you and your team will learn the DesignThink process while tackling a real challenge from your own site. With the guidance of our school leaders, you will put all of your new tools to immediate use as you hit the ground running — interviewing and observing students to find out what motivates them. Then, you'll head back to your own site with a new plan to implement and a research-backed process for tackling new challenges as they arise.

Key Takeaways

- Acquire Design Thinking tools and receive coaching so you can translate what you have learned in the workshop to your own school to drive innovation and program development.

- Understand how to define and reframe problems based on the emotional needs of users.

- Develop a "just try it" mentality through rapid prototyping and iteration.

- Empower your team to make real change in your school by embracing a student-centered approach.

Who Should Attend?

Bring school leaders, classroom teachers, or your whole faculty and staff! The more "movers and shakers" from your school, the better!

What does this cost?

For the four day in-service, the cost is $500 per person or $2,000 for a team of five. Breakfast and lunch are included. Register before April 1st, and get an additional $50 off per participant.
